About Gregg Davis
Harriet Showman holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in colonial South Carolina history and has spent much of her personal and professional life helping children and young adults succeed amidst challenging circumstances, including poverty and abuse. With a strong core of allies, Ms. Showman helped to establish a statewide Guardian ad Litem program to provide legal support for abused children; a Cities in Schools organization to serve underprivileged students; and a vehicle for the accumulation of monies to be distributed in grants through the Children’s Trust Fund. As a development officer for South Carolina’s flagship university, she attracted resources from major, national foundations to target South Carolina’s most urgent needs. She remains interested in the plight of children, teens, and adults who suffer abuse, oppression, and the paralyzing pain of invisibility.
